Ahhhh hand quilting and an old swap

I am finally at the point of hand quilting, everytime I start with hand quilting I just think how wonderful it is to work on these stitches. I have so many quilts to quilt I am wondering if this winter will be finishing some tops....I wonder

I had been in a swap at the beginning of the year and could not post the mini I had rec`d first I could not find the camera and then I couldn`t find the mini,  had done some rearranging and there it was. I am not sure if you remember Micki of Irish Muses (not posting on her blog anymore) but she was my swappee and she sent me this mini sampler

This is the one that I had sent it was hand appliqued and quilted 1/4in crosshatch. I didn`t get a finished picture of it before I sent it in the mail.
I am off to a quilt show tomorrow in Toronto with Rosemarie, then we are going to sew some after and talk about our lovely adventure.


  1. I would like to see more of the first quilt with the rings. Looks interesting. Please post again some time in the future.

  2. Love the mini you sent! I need to get more hand quilting finished too.

  3. Hi, ich suche Patchworkstoffe als Designerstoffe. Habt Ihr einen Tipp wo man so Stoffe Meterware findet?

  4. I'm working on a hand-quilted baby quilt now - got started with the quilting yesterday but it's definitely not 1/4"!!! Your work is really lovely. I, too, would like to see more of the quilt in the top photo. Pretty please?

  5. that is a really cute mini... always enjoy your blog

  6. Wintertime is when I like to hand quilt. The quilt keeps me nice and warm.
